The FIN-CLARIN consortium consists of a group of Finnish universities along with CSC – IT Center for Science and the Institute for the Languages of Finland (Kotus). FIN-CLARIN helps the researchers in Finland to use, to refine, to preserve and to share their language resources. The Language Bank of Finland is the collection of services that provides the language materials and tools for the research community.

Within FIN-CLARIN, the University of Helsinki is responsible for obtaining new corpora, for developing specific tools and for organising courses, whereas CSC – IT Centre for Science provides the technical services of the Language Bank.

FIN-CLARIN is a member of CLARIN ERIC that aims to build a common infrastructure for the digital humanities in Europe.
